Re: CL_DTN dll I instructions

Forgive this off topic paragraph before I get to the
meat below . . . 

Why don't we all throw in $5 each and pool together to
pay a P.I. to go find out the Cruz Bros. addresses,
telephones, cellphones, emails, shrinks ., etc. and
then call all the fast food places in Miami telling
them to deliver to their addresses at all hours of the
night. Also, call topsoil and asphalt delivery ("just
put it on my tab and dump it in the middle of my
driveway next to the street - I'll be needing at least
10 yards . . ." ).  I used to have a friend in the
tree business that would back up in the drive & dump a
huge load of sawdust and stumps like that in the
middle of the night on any bastard who screwed you
over for a measley $50. Hell, call a wrecker to tow
his car off (". . . it won't start, and I'm leaving
for vacation now - just tow it to "Busters" on the
East side of Miami"). Paying a P.I. a few more bucks
to snap a photo with telephoto lense of Bill's face
the next morning standing in his driveway would be
priceless for posting on the net.

Check it yourself - the file size of those .dll files
in bytes is 258,048 for BOTH the old and new .dll file
on my computer. The only difference is <somebody>
changed the version from 5.00.0822 to 5.01.0822 in the
newer .dll.

Now, it's very unusual to make any decent changes to
code and then compile it and get the exact same file
size. Go figure on that one.

The least we can do is all go short on TRAD stock.
